5.0 out of 5 stars Cornwall at his best, 19 Jan 2013

This review is from: 1356 (Hardcover)
Another scorcher, in typical Cornwell style. Can't put it down.

I read The Fort recently. It was good, but a bit slow. This one is action packed and bounds along at a terrific pace.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't speak highly enough about this album, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heaven and Hell (Audio CD)
Never been a massive fan of Black Sabbath as Ozzys singing wasn't always up to much. Loved to listen to Ronnie James Dio with Rainbow so decided to give this album a go. Fantastic. Ronnie's singing is perfect alongside Tony's wonderful guitar playing. And have to say I'm very impressed with bass playing by Geezer Butler. Some great songs and this album was a steal for £5.00.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class, 13 Mar 2011
I've seen loads of programs on tv about Harry - a wonderful old man. When I heard about the book I read quite a few reviews online. What everyone said was 100% correct - if you are after a First World War book then buy something else because this is Harry's life story.
There is a good-sized section all about joining up and active service. And what happened after he was injured. But the book has great stories about Harry as a young man and then into married life. His role in World War 2 and growing old.
Its a fascinating read and you dont need an interest in WW1 to get an enjoyable read from the book. If you are interested in WW1 then Harry's stories about life in the trenches is both informative and heartbreaking.
Its not an expensive book and its easy reading. The proceeds from the book goes to the RNLI so you get a great book and you are able to support a worthy cause. Enjoy !
